 Nintendo's newest game for tween girls is Style Savvy, a virtual world where girls work in a clothing shop and work their way up to owning their own boutique.  The store is part of a town that the girls can explore as well as get new hair and make-up styles.  However, this part of the game was not included in the Simple Demo (as opposed to the larger E3 Demo) at Nintendo's booth.      


The demo presents the player with two customers complete with their own profiles including occupation, style, and budget.  The first customer knows exactly what she wants, and the second asks for a suggestion which would match her specific style.  The first player asks for jeans, which is easy because the store was currently only carrying one style in stock.   She tries them on, falls in love, and buys them.  The next customer asks for an inner layer to wear to dinner which matches her elegant style.  Select one of the three inner layers (shirts), and if it is the correct one, she loves them and asks for you to put together a whole outfit.  In the end, she buys everything.    


Gameplay was simple enough mostly because of the small number of items in the shop, but there was definite room for more as the game progressed, meaning that when a customer would ask for a certain item, more care would have to be taken in selecting it.    The controls were Stylus based and the game is played with the DS held sideways to enable full body views of outfits.  The shop was easy to navigate and the graphics were nice.    


Local Wi-Fi enables the player to enter into   runway contests and even open a second shop.  All in all, Style Savvy is a great game with lots of potential for tween girls looking to open their open shops but experiencing a limited budget.

This game moved whole loads of units in Japan, so I'm really really curious about this game!

Too bad this is on DS and not Wii... :(

? I'm curious, why?

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Because I don't own a DS and therefore I can't get this game!

I found the demo to be mildly interesting--which to me says that this will be very popular amongst the target market if marketed properly. I'm not keen on the art style, though.
